Ants’ Progress

This morning I checked to see how the ants were doing with my Grant’s Ant Stake. Last night’s three remained on the kitchen counter. They were not moving.

When I left for work, they still were not moving. A bad omen for the ants. A fourth, looking pretty disoriented itself, arrived on the scene and it appeared to be making preparation to haul one of the fallen comrades back to the nest.

This evening two of the three deceased ants rested where they had been; a more recent arrival in a different location (no doubt part of a salvage and rescue operation) had also expired.

When I plunked the pile of mail down on the counter, the fallen ants blew off the counter top. If you put out the stakes, the ants won’t come by any more.
